BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge police say an elderly woman involved in an accident Thursday on Coursey Boulevard has died.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said in an email that 90-year-old Gladys Sonntag died Thursday evening at a local hospital.

McKneely said Sonntag was attempting to make a left turn from Coursey onto American Way when she was struck by a car traveling eastbound on Coursey.

Sonntag's car then struck an SUV that had stopped at the stop sign on American Way and Coursey.

McKneely said the drivers of the other vehicles suffered minor to moderate.

The investigation is continuing.
